Testimonials

Paul Forsline, President City of Skate, Minneapolis, MN

“The Juxtaposition Skateable Art Plaza was designed in collaboration with the Juxtaposition youth design apprentices, staff architects and City of Skate members. Hunger Skateparks was the perfect build partner to make our vision an amazing community space and skateboarding perfection.  The Juxtaposition Skateable Plaza has become a successful active, community space valued by youth, parents, businesses, and community members because of the fine work of Hunger Skateparks.”

Jesper Andreasen, School of Skørping, Denmark

“Not only does this park skate good for users on all levels, it looks amazing too, and it is more than obvious to anyone, that the park was built with love for skateboarding and the aspect of building skate-terrain. So many neat details are included that you rarely see in todays skateparks, and Bart Smith is responsible for it all. His analytical skills, his artistic sense and approach, and his outstanding work-ethics are far superior to anyone I’ve ever seen.”

“They (Hunger) were happy to hold multiple meetings in order to gather ideas and encourage overall project involvement.  Design was completed in approximately 6 weeks.  Hunger Skateparks also furnished a sample design of similar square footage to use for Henry County Food and Beverage Grant 2016, which the City of New Castle-Park Board was awarded $275,000.00.”
